Jimmy Kimmel bashes Jay Leno on Leno show

Earlier tonight, Jimmy Kimmel appeared on that show with Big Jaw Leno. Here's some of the details:
He was sorta being increasingly bitchy throughout — he compared Leno’s relationship to Conan to a stripper’s relationship with a john,” says our source. “He accused Jay of trying to trick him to host The Tonight Show just so Leno can take it back from him: ‘Listen Lucy, I’m not Charlie Brown, I don’t fall for that trick.’”

Still, says our source, Kimmel got really brutal on Conan’s usurper at the very end of the segment.

“Listen, Jay: Conan and I have children. All you have to take care of is cars,” Kimmel said.

“We’ve got lives to lead here, you’ve got 800 million dollars. For God’s sake, leave our shows alone!”
Here's some more courtesy of Gawker:
Asked by Leno what the best prank he ever pulled was] "The best prank I ever pulled was I told a guy that—five years from now—I'm gonna give you my show. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him, and then I took it back almost instantly."

[Asked by Leno if he ever orders anything off of the TV] "Like NBC ordered your show off the TV?"

[Asked by Leno what the record is for number of lap dances he's received in one night] "Strippers, I don't like in general. Because you have this phony relationship with them for money, similar to that of when you and Conan were on The Tonight Show together, passing the torch... you know what I'm saying."

[Asked by Leno what he hasn't yet hosted, but would like to] "Oh, this is a trick, right? Where you get me to host The Tonight Show and then take it back from me?"

[Asked why he came on to do the segment] "Listen, Jay, Conan and I have children—all you have to take care of is cars. I mean, we have lives to lead here. You've got $800 million, for God's sakes—leave our shows alone."
I've got to hand it to Letterman and CBS for releasing portions on youtube early:
